    Does this mean the whipples are out?
    Now you can see why she was so nice to you while you were having the boat built.

    Hi UT. There are many "Hidden Costs"
    You have not calculated the "True cost" of your boat. This is not a constant %. Right now it seems to run in the 100% column. And what i mean by that is, X=$ spent on upgrades. Maint. is not considered in this charge. Maint is non-chargeable. Spend x on the boat, spend x on the wife. BTW when the wife is "only the G/F" the equation is 20 or 30% of X. Well anyway, as time goes on and the wife becomes more powerfull, sort of like getting Whipple charged, the constant goes up to 1.5x X and then to 2x X and so on. In my case my ex-wife, and notice I said ex, decided she was tired of (and I quote) "seeing the back of my team jacket" leaving the house every weekend to go Racing. Well at that point the equation changed, The true cost went up to 10x X, She wound up with 8 x X and her Lawyer took 2 x X. Got to watch those hidden costs

    LOL!!! ahhhhh, my bros. i feel your pain. there is hardly a time that JBG goes out of the house without $15-20K in jewelry and accessories. if it is designer it isn't for JBG. just consider yourselves lucky.........rolex, 5-6c's in diamonds, prada blouses, gucci shoes, louis vuitton purses, chanel sunglasses. i had to get a wallet to match her purse. the damn thing is worth more than the $ in it. if i were ever held at gunpoint, i'd tell 'em to take my money but leave my wallet

    Ah, the 4 C's.........

    Uncle Toys,

    You were so close on the 4 C's sweetie. Actually, you only missed it by one.........color, cut, clarity, and quality

    Hey Shane, ya know........we wouldn't want you guys to have to go out in public with anything but the best "hardare" on your arm now.......... or in the boudoir. I mean, it just woudn't be right........don't ya think? LOL!

    I think the point being made by some of the ladies is just that whats good for the goose is good for the gander. That's all, but I think that often times, that angle is taken advantage of. Only my silly opinion of course.


    Wow! Where do I sign up? I'd like that program, but have never had it. Maybe its because the boat parts and engines were a bigger turn on for me.'ve given me a thought now.

    That's my story and I'm sticking to it. away at me now.

    My wonderful OSO lurking wife wants to get her two cents in on this thread as you guys finally hit her hot button.

    Here goes from Terrie P.

    Seems that Iíve apparently let Ron slide a bit in the jewelry purchasing dept. since he didnít remember what the 4 cís are. Sweety, guess what weíre doing this weekend???

    Most wives know how important their hubbyís boat is to him both in performance and appearance. If a wife is properly accessorized with diamonds while cruising on the boat, the glare from the sun reflecting off of her diamonds draws more attention to his boat. We know how much you appreciate other boaters gawking at your boat, so this is our way of helping out.

    "I'm not much into diamonds. I buy the fake ones for 15 dollars!" Miss Amy you ARE the perfect women - well - except for that Lutz guy who is always hanging around.

    Cloths and shoes? Heck, I've been swiming up that stream for decades.

    Turbojack - Are the Whipples out? No chance! In fact I am working on the stupid insurance now so I can have the blowers by the Regatta I'm trying to slow her down, not me.
